Bacon & Green Onion Cream Cheese Spread

Absolutely anytime I come across a recipe that calls for cream cheese, I pretty much always will store it in my recipe saver (even recipes that call for questionable ingredient combinations...how bad could it be? It has cream cheese in it!)

While scrolling Pinterest, I came across this very easy recipe found on NancyCreative's blog. I followed it to a tee, right down to her awesome suggestion of enjoying this savory spread on top an everything bagel. 

We made this for dinner tonight, but it could easily be breakfast or lunch as well....or a snack! Great on a Ritz cracker or Wheat Thin. Could also be made into a nice cheese ball or cheese log.

*My only suggestion to this already great recipe, is using a low-sodium bacon.

Bacon & Green Onion Cream Cheese 
~adapted from NancyCreative~

8 oz softened cream cheese
4 oz cooked chopped bacon (about 12 oz pkg, uncooked)
1/4 C chopped green onions
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
Everything Bagels

Using a fork, mash together cream cheese, bacon, & green onions. Mix in Worcestershire sauce. Once combined, cover and store in fridge until ready to use.

About 5 min before serving, preheat broiler and toast bagel halves until desired doneness (about 3-4 min), checking frequently not to burn.

Allow bagels to cool about 3 min before spreading desired amount on to each bagel half.

This spread should be enough for 6-8 bagels (depending on how much you like)

  1. Thanks for sharing the recipe! This cheese spread is something I haven’t tried before since I’m so used to regular cream cheese. And it’s a combo for bagels! How awesome is that!
